The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has emphasized that humanity will face irreversible climate breakdown unless we act immediately to transform global systems and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This article focuses on six key climate topics to keep your eyes on this year.
Video: Communities Combat Coca Growers
Indigenous communities in Peru are using new technologies to detect and combat deforestation in their territories. Indigenous territorial monitors receive deforestation alerts from satellite data, speeding up their ability to detect and intervene against illegal deforestation. Communities Combat Coca Growers was produced by If Not Us Then Who? and Rainforest Foundation US. The video follows territorial monitors from the indigenous communities of Nuevo Saposoa and Patria Nueva who are putting the new technologies to use.
With so many global charities supporting the climate, we are proud and grateful to see several publications recognize Rainforest Foundation US on their “Best Charities” lists.
As the year comes to a close we’re looking back at all of the amazing things we’ve accomplished in 2022, together! Check out our Year in Review.
